thanks! not sure what your crossfit trainer showed you, but if you are comfortable with posting your situation on here we can all help you with your diet / workout choices and make sure you aren't doing anything dumb.

I took a two year hiatus and I never really realized how out of Shape I've got. I just got back into the gym about four months ago and after two months of working out I hit a plateau. My friend is a cross fit trainer and he showed me a new way of exercising which is a lot of sets and a lot of reps with heavyweight! and that has increased my muscle strength and everything tenfold!
feels like forever since I've been in a gym, but it's been less than a week. I rested the ankle over the weekend, and while I was away for the holidays the last four days I did the following exercises twice (no workout equipment was available)
Tyson 15 Style Pushups (1 rep, get up, touch wall in front of you, back down, 2 reps, get up etc)
Completed 10 rounds (55 pushups total) and couldn't get anymore reps. One of my personal goals is to be able to complete all 15 rounds eventually.
3 sets of 15 Tricep "Bench" Dips (A couch and a bed in this case)
3 sets of 60 second planks
3 sets of 33 bodyweight squats
3 sets of 20 situps
Nothing I could do any variation of pullups on
Didn't overeat, just focused on eating close to maintenance to limit fat gain / hopefully burn some off
gf's family thought i was strange
back at it on monday when I'm home
